Using webMathematica to solve optics problems

Mathematica can be used to solve most math problems.  webMathematica makes it possible to run Mathematica models over the Internet, even if you do not have Mathematica on your computer. On this web site I am illustrating a few examples of what can be done using webMathematica to solve optics problems.
